Mo’Nique won’t go down without a fight when it comes to her issues with Netflix and she isn’t alone as another star has backed her.

Actress Kimberly Elise, who has acted alongside Oprah in the movie”Beloved,” has thrown her support behind Mo’Nique. Elise tweeted Friday that she had “so much love” for the comic and singer India.Aire, who recently backed the outspoken star.

“@indiaarie @moworldwide so much love to you both,” she said. “They want the #blackgirlmagic but have not wanted pay for it. #worthy”

When a Twitter user asked if Elise, who co-starred with Mo’Nique in the 2016 ensemble film “Almost Christmas,” would get a share of any deal the comedian may score, Elise had nothing but more praise for Mo.

“Yes, it was an ensemble but @moworldwide was the sparkle and oxygen of that film,” Elise replied. “I give her a billion props for her work in it. It wouldn’t have been the same without HER. That’s the simple truth.”

In response, Mo’Nique took a break from clapping back at the opposition to thank her former co-star for her praise.

At the end of February, India.Aire tweeted that she stands with Mo’Nique and applauded her for “speaking up at ALL! KNOWING she’d be hit with so much hate.#ImWithYouMo.”

And Chance the Rapper has also voiced support for the comedian. He tweeted, “I’m with Mo’Nique” last month.
